Mark Hamill Reacts To Seeing Yoda Again In 'The Last Jedi' Behind The Scenes Footage

By: Dominic Jones

A new preview of the behind the scenes footage being included on the home media release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been released by USA Today.  The footage features Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill reacting to seeing Yoda on set again for the first time since the filming of Return of the Jedi.  Hamill is visibly moved by seeing his former "co-star" again, and is comforted by director Rian Johnson and Yoda puppeteer and voice actor Frank Oz.  You can see the moment below,

The clip is from the documentary The Director and the Jedi, which will be included on the home media release of The Last JediYou can seen an eleven-minute preview of the documentary here.

Hamill spoke about the moment with USA Today, telling them,

"The whole movie was really difficult for me emotionally. It was acknowledging your mortality (and) the fact that something that was so meaningful in your life was necessarily coming to an end, to pass the torch to the next generation. I started the process of disconnecting emotionally when I read (The Force Awakens) and knew I'd never work with Harrison (Ford) again, and of course the biggest trauma was losing Carrie (Fisher) in real life and only just having that brief scene with her in the movie. It took on new meaning because Luke was saying goodbye to his sister and I was saying goodbye to ever working with her again, knowing Luke's fate."

The film will be released digitally tomorrow (March 13th) and on blu-ray and 4K Ultra on March 27th.
